I’ve been on the hunt for a gemmy rainbow obsidian- very happy! It’s so mellow; it’s a very grounded and open vibe. Yum! *please note: my pic doesn’t do it justice!

Rainbow Obsidian
Energy Vibrations

These Rainbow Obsidian are direct from the mine! These beauties have clear rings of color, sometimes on one side, sometimes on both. While many Obsidians have a heavy energy, Rainbow Obsidians feel lighter and hopeful. They remind us that while to every life a little rain must fall, the light will return again to color our world with joy and peace.

Ethically Sourced

Rainbow Obsidian from Mexico

This Rainbow Obsidian comes from a small mine in Jalisco, Mexico.  The deposit is owned by a single miner who also runs a lapidary shop that polishes the stones.  The mine has a low environmental impact and is relatively safe for miners.

This mine and lapidary is a family business in Guadalajara, Mexico. The father has been an Obsidian miner all his life, and his son runs a lapidary that specializes in polished Obsidian. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The business is also the exporter and sells at large gem shows in the Western United States.

I originally had fancy Obsidian from another source with more middlemen involved. I connected directly with my current source at the 2019 Denver Gem Show. They work exclusively in Obsidian, both pure black and rarer varieties such as Rainbow Obsidian, Gold Sheen and Silver Sheen. I learned that the father had been mining Obsidian his whole life and that when his children became adults, they decided to start a polishing factory and export it to the US. Their stock is exquisite, both the quality of the stone and the polishing techniques. I am very happy to do business with them.

Rainbow Obsidian Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published December 2017  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Rainbow Obsidian is a rare variety of naturally-colorful Obsidian found mainly in Jalisco, Mexico.  It wonderful colors are created by nanoparticles of Hedenbergite caught within the volcanic glass.  All Obsidians are grounding and encourage us to love truth, but Rainbow Obsidian also encourages us to have hope and to keep our chin up.  It is a great stone to work with when we are struggling with a major problem that makes us feel gloomy and helpless.  Its energy reminds us that the hard times won’t last forever and that if we are diligent and smart we’ll soon make it the other side.  When we do, Rainbow Obsidian is a perfect talisman for celebration!

    The Rainbow Obsidian is magnificent. It’s the first one I’ve seen in person and no photo prepared me. Its colors remind me of the Lagoon Nebula, an affirmation of creation and light, their mysterious beginnings in the darkness of space.

    Thank you for taking the time to package my crystals in such a mindful and considerate way! I was delighted to receive them, particularly the Rainbow Obsidian.The egg shape evokes the “Golden Egg” card a friend recently pulled for me in a reading- reminding me to go inward and turn the dark to light, becoming comfortable with vulnerability and essence. The bands are beautiful in the sun, especially towards the “top” of the egg. The imagery works beautifully with what I had in mind!

    The rainbow obsidian is big, but gentler and has beautiful bands of color. One side kind of reminds me of an eyeball. I love it!

    I received the stones yesterday evening, wow they are beautiful. I love your stones, they arrive very clean and energy radiating. I can’t wait to work with them ^^ the obsidians feel powerful (the rainbow one in particular). They are all wonderful, I could feel their particular vibes as I held them in turn. And thank you for the gift pen, and for taking such great care in packing them :) You are amazing!
